Kristin Omdahl has really BIG new projects to share

Kristin Omdahl has really BIG new projects to share on the Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird today so LET’S GET IT STARTED!KO Profile Pic

Kristin has been studying skin care products for herself and friends for many years. KO Glow basketRecently, she began to offer it to the public, GLOW Body Products, through study and trial, pursuing all-natural, aroma therapy, and anti-aging of the highest qualities. Her natural face cream is an proprietary blend of essential oils that has become beloved by so many, and users are demanding that she never stop creating it! The line includes bath salts (her teenaged athlete loves), sugar scrubs, balms, bar soaps, cleansers and toners.

Kristin Cares logoGetting a little personal, Kristin, as a public figure, realizes as a victim and survivor of domestic violence, says ‘If you can find a way to help other people, you can find a purpose for your pain and suffering.‘ She’s been trying to find a way to help and give back to victims not as strong or without the resources she’s had. While not everyone is a knitter or crocheter, they do need body care products. She found that a percentage of her sales can be donated to make a difference. Thus, Project Kristin Cares was begun, so that those who find themselves finally out of the dangerous situations can receive quality products rather than the cheapest and not necessarily the most beneficial.

We can follow Kristin Omdahl at her website,, where she has a blog, and links to shop her products, she has a Ravelry Designer page, Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and a YouTube channel. Here also are the links to earlier visits to the Yarn Thing podcast: just in March with her new book, Continuous Crochet, in Feb. 2015 as a podcast sponsor,  July 2014 with Bamboo So Fine, 2013 more new projects, Introducing Wrapture in 2012, May 2012, Feb 2012, March 2011, Dec 2010, March 2009. Not sure if you can tell, we love Kristin on the Yarn Thing podcast!

    Wow! I’ve seen her on TV but never realized she has so multitalented. I love her Kristin Cares project. I’ve done knitting and crochet donations for the woman’s shelter here in Sacramento and they are so desperate for things to treat themselves. Glow products sound like just the treat they need for a pick me up.!

  2. Mindi Giles says:

    This was a great podcast. Had me in tears a few times. I placed an order for yarn and the Glow face cream. I can’t wait to try both. I love that people will be helped by my purchases. Thank You!!!

  3. Elizabeth says:

    I enjoyed watching Kristin Omdahl when she was on Knitting Daily. She is so creative and multi-talented and a wonderful teacher. Today’s episode was heartbreaking, but I felt so happy for Kristin that she was strong enough to triumph over the abuse in her past. I look forward to trying some of the Glow products she has created.

    I am crocheting a pattern from Crochet so lovely, while listening to Yarn Thing the glow I am feeling is wonderful.

  5. Branwynne says:

    I’m so grateful to have learned about Project Kristin Cares. This is a topic that deserves more attention, and Kristin’s response and life journey are incredibly inspiring. In many ways, I think “glow” is just the perfect concept for this interview. Kristin’s light shines bright.

    Wow, I am amazed and in awe of Kristin’s talents. I can’t wait to try her Glow line of facial products. And that Kristin gives back to help abused women is extra special. I love the conversation concerning “God Bless’ but honestly – how appropriate. Thanks Marly for letting us know about her new adventure.

  9. Amy says:

    Kristin’s story is so inspiring it makes my heart glow. I hope people in abusive relationships draw strength and courage from her example. I don’t spend a lot on body products, but I’m going to try some of her new line. They sound great and support an important cause.

    Wow, I’ve followed Kristin for a while on Facebook but since I don’t crochet much I hadn’t checked out her work. I am impressed by her and her outreach to sufferers of domestic violence. I’d love to try her Glow products and will likely order soon.
